Every month, the Academy staff works to compile the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did as a fleet in February.
This first graph depicts the number of applications that the fleet has received each month this year. The month of February saw nine applications, the highest since last November.
The following chart shows how our new members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of February. The fleet saw 5 new graduates during the month, increasing this year’s graduate percentage from 50% to 53%. This is down from the overall graduation rate of 71% in 2020. This annual graduation rate is highly likely to shift as we get deeper into 2021. It should be noted that two of the cadets who completed applications this month didn’t begin their training class until March.
These new recruits are the lifeblood of our community. Without them, it becomes difficult to keep our ships fully crewed and even more difficult to grow the fleet. If you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
